Fluid States, installation view, 2018, Celluclay, plaster, fabric, sand, rope, metal, wood, acrylic, oil

This installation seeks to immerse the viewer in an augmented reality where suppressed memory and hypnogogic states are given form. That is, relating to the liminal state between dreaming and consciousness. Here the domestic space is explored as the main purveyor of meaning-making where narratives surrounding gender, politics, religion, and the like are created and established. In a world of shifting polarities the need to deconstruct and re-align ourselves toward these scripts formed in adolescence becomes increasingly important. The work serves as an initiator or a catalyst of conversation surrounding one’s own epistemology as we come to recognize that in order to understand the other we must first understand ourselves.
